Lemn Sissay is a Manchester poet, possibly best known for writing poems on the walls of pubs, included the beleagured pub on the corner near us. B. did not support his bid to become Chancellor of the University, opting for someone more scientific and straightforwardly academic. However our neighbours (the Manchester Museum and Art Gallery Mafia) supported his successful bid and we've seen him several times since and can't fault his ability to say the right thing at the right occasion. This video he made for the university is a case in point.


EDIT: Actually "right thing at the right occasion" sounds rather false. It's his ability to eloquently express something that an event or organisation is, ideally, striving towards that is impressive.
